KLRU Schedule | Suffragettes Forever! The Story Of Women And Power
Episode #103

In the final episode of the story of British women's fight for power, historian Amanda Vickery explores how the Edwardian suffragette movement became a quasi-terrorist organization. Pointing to what they achieved with their violent campaign, Vickery argues that the work of the suffragettes are best understood as part of a war still going on today. Vickery brings to life the enemies of female suffrage too: from the golfing prime minister Herbert Asquith - who had nightmares of being stripped naked by angry suffragettes - to the furious anti-suffrage societies and their mass meetings in the Royal Albert Hall. She describes the political skullduggery to stop women from getting the vote and the increasing extremism of the suffragettes in response. What did the suffragettes achieve? Vickery describes the political backroom deal that finally allowed some women the vote, the abusive treatment of the first female MP Lady Astor and the misogynistic backlash of the 1920s, revealed through attitudes to a great women's football team. The series concludes by looking ahead, 50 years after women won the vote, to Margaret Thatcher. Was her election a sign that the suffragette dream had been fulfilled, or is this a fight is still present today?
